Marquette Golden Eagles Part Of ESPN Tip-Off Marathon

ESPN released its schedule for its annual college basketball tip-off marathon Monday and the Marquette Golden Eagles will be featured in one of the final games of the long day.

The event begins Monday, Nov. 17, at 6 p.m. Central and continues through games scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Central on Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Marquette visits Ohio State at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 18, a game that will be aired nationally on ESPN2.

The field is highlighted by the Champions Classic in Indianapolis, a doubleheader featuring Michigan State vs. Duke and Kansas against Kentucky.

The more than 24 consecutive hours of live basketball begins on Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. Central, with Miami and Florida meeting in the regular season for the first time since 2005 and later on Nov. 17 is a non-conference battle between SMU and Gonzaga.

If you’re a college basketball fan, this opening event is one of the red-letter events of the year. If you’re a college basketball fan known to suffer from insomnia, so much the better.
